Sparkle Bulletin Board - What's Working Wednesday


What's Working Wednesday

Look at me.....sharing two, count them two days in a row!!! And posting a What's Working Wednesday on an actual Wednesday!!

Today I want to share a bulletin board idea with you. We used it for our graduating students but I think it would make a terrific BTS bulletin board to set the tone for the year.

The inspiration for this bulletin board came from two things. First, this poster I have in my room:

Sparkle poster for character development

This poster comes from Joanne at Head Over Heels for Teaching. Our Grade 8 teacher was explaining to me what she wanted this year's grad theme to be, how they were using a disco ball in the classroom and talked about their light and sparkle.....so I showed her the poster, cause disco ball + sparkle = Joanne!!  She loved it!

Second, my teaching partner and I saw this pin:



We loved the bulletin board and used it as our inspiration.

Here is our bulletin board with the graduation motto:

bulletin board idea for character development
We used a black plastic tablecloth for the background. I cut the letters out from super glittery scrapbook paper from Michael's. The border is glittery tissue paper cut into rectangles and stapled randomly around the border. We folded it and pinched it to make it poof. This part was a wee bit labour intensive. But three of us worked on it and talked and worked and talked, so if you are doing it grab a friend you need to catch up with!

I also made these labels that were attached to gift bags with a sparkler (from the dollar store). I did the labels but not the labour intensive gift bag part : )

I think that this bulletin board would make a great BTS bulletin board and theme for the year!! If you need some music to go with this theme, check out these songs we used for the slideshow:
